The green to grey-brown cumin seed whole is also called jinten, after the Indonesian name for this spice. We know him mainly from Asian cuisine. However, few people know that you can use cumin seeds for many more dishes. You can give it a glorious role in both Dutch and international dishes and also make tasty, healthy tea from it.

Cumin seed whole comes from the cumin plant, which originated in Iran, Syria, India and Turkey. The leaves of the plant somewhat resemble those of fennel and the seeds have a light nut-pepper taste, which you can also somewhat compare with aniseed. The cumin plant belongs to the same family as dill, coriander and chervil. Like these herbs, cumin seeds have a very strong, spicy and at the same time slightly bitter smell and taste. Besides as seeds, you can also use the spice as a finely ground powder. However, cumin seed whole is stronger in smell and taste and also retains both longer. In addition, it has a longer shelf life.


Cumin seeds have already been used in traditional medicine against all kinds of symptoms. Not surprising, because the spice is a source of minerals, especially iron. It also contains antioxidants and stimulates the liver. It has a regulating effect on the blood sugar level.

How to Use
It is best to lightly toast the cumin seeds whole before adding them to your dish. Be careful not to do this for too long, otherwise they will have a bitter taste. After roasting, you can crush or grind the cumin seeds whole. The spice tastes aniseed and has a warm, aromatic character. It gives dishes a fuller taste. It also works well in side dishes based on yogurt and/or cucumber. You can also use it, just like people used to do, instead of black pepper in a dish.
